Are you going to use an outside photographer? Is so who? I am really trying to decide on that. Good pictures are really important to me.

 

Thanks,

Ashley

I did a site visit back in July and fell in love with this place!

 

They do allow outside vendors including an outside photographer, you just need to pay as if they were a guest - $100 which is very reasonable since some other resorts I know charge $400.

 

For any future Valentin Brides out there who would like to use the chapel for a Catholic wedding I have very good news! My WC Guadalupe sent me an email a few weeks ago and I would like to share it with you all!

 

"I am very pleased to inform you that Father Bernard who officiates the weddings her with us has given us the OK to have masses here in the year 2009. Our little chapel is now more than ready for your coming event. I hope we can continue your plan to get married here"

 

So if you are planning for a religious ceremony for your wedding I highly recommend this place! I searched all the resorts in the Mayan Riviera which had on-site chapels and this by far is the most beautiful one in my opinion!

 

Good luck ladies and to Amyrak: I know your wedding is coming up very quickly....I would like to wish you a beautiful most memorable wedding!!!

I was going through the same dilemma. I feel the same way. Pics are extremely importatnt therefore, I will be using an outside photographer. I have booked Claudia Rodriguez. She is highly recommended. Let me know if you want her contact information. She has been used by other brides on this forum. Good luck on what you decide.

Has anyone seen reviews or pics from the Valentine on the site? I haven't but I think there are already been a couple brides from the site married there?

 

I just had some family friends get back and they said the food was fabulous! When they were there (in November), the area was coming off 30 days of rain and they said the mosquitoes were pretty bad. Hopefully with a summer date I won't have to worry about that.

 

They are not really picture people but are supposed to be sending me a couple. If and when I get them I will post!

 

Only 6 months till the big day!! I have so much to do!!!

Hello,

 

I was married at the Valentin on November 27th..everything was great, the resort was great. The cake we picked out everyone raved about being the best dessert we had. If you want to look at my pics go to our website at Greg & Amy's Wedding Site and click on the pics from Mexico link. We just used the onsite photographer Marco and he was excellent!! Was very pleased with the pics. Any questions I will try to answer but it's really busy right now getting back and all the holiday going ons!

Hello!

I had to write on here to tell all the brides that are going to get married how amazing this place is as well as Congratulations!!

I was on vacation at the Valentin Imperial from Nov 7th to Nov 14th. The resort is breath taking...the rooms are stunning (we had the Jr Deluxe Suite), the food is excellent, pool is refreshing and very clean, the beach is kept clean and great service from the staff there as well.

I got engaged on Nov 9th to my fiance the third day in which made this place even more special. From that moment on I kept thinking how beautiful a wedding would be to have at the Valentin. The ground are beautiful!! We can not have our wedding at the Valentin as we have some cousins children ages 9,10 and 12 that are coming with us so we are looking at other resorts right now as we are going to get married Nov 2009 in the Mayan Riviera.

No matter where we were walking on the resort it seemed like at times we were the only ones there. This resort is not over crowded at all. You have no problems finding a spot on the beach or around the pool. They have such nice music playing and you can hear it throughout as you walk on the paths, it was very soothing!

You never had long line ups for the alacartes at all. It was so nice to have the option to go for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The buffet that they have for breakfast and lunch as well was great! The buffet area where you get your food is all air conditioned and opens with sliding glass doors. They have an area to sit inside with air conditioning or outside. We sat outside as there was always a nice breeze.

 

At this resort you feel like Royalty. All the workers say "Hola" and smile at you when walking by.

 

We have been to a lot of all inclusives and my fiance and I agreed that we were sad to leave this place and go home. Usually you are ready to leave after a week but not at this resort. We could have easily stayed two weeks no problem. The only thing that kept us from doing this was work and had to relieve the in laws from looking after our 5 month old yellow lab (who is a handful but cute).

 

All the best and enjoy this resort when you go!! It is going to be amazing!!!!

 

P.S: If you are planning on a church wedding the church is beatiful. You go over a little bridge walkway into the church which is surrounded by water. The water at this resort is always crystal clear. They drain it and re fil it so you never see that green colour to it at all.

I just returned from a 7 day stay at the Valetin, and thought I would let everyone know what I thought!

First let me start by saying the resort is GORGEOUS!!!!! you will not be disapointed! The service was the best (by most) Rooms are beautiful, and very clean. The resort itself is well maintained, and breath taking (perfect for wedding photos) The only thing the resort was missing, was none of the water features were workinghuh.gif? Not sure why?

Ok now the bad! I figured that while I was there I would make an appointment with the wedding coordinator. I was hoping for a little tour see Cereemony sites, and honeymoon suite, And I also thought I could get a few questions answered. Lupita(guadaluppe sp?)(same person) blew me off, not once but twice.

The first time I talked to her on the phone, and I explained that I was considering having my wedding there, and that I would like to meet with her to ask her a few qustions etc... She quickly replied "the wedding package info is on our website" After a moment of silence I replied " I have some questions that arent provided on the website" again silence.... the she says " well I am far too busy right now, you need to make an appointment" ok understandable, so she suggests a day, and time, and I leave it at that!

I showed up for my appointment, the concierge calls her, and tells her i was waiting for her, and she makes him ask if I had an appointmenthuh.gif? ummmmm ya you choose the day, and time! So finally she comes out of her office, and honestly she was very nice, but you could tell she didnt want to waste her time with me. I asked her a couple of questions (private receptions, location of ceremony, decorations etc...) but after only getting quick 1 word answers I gave up! She just kept repeating the same thing over, and over again. "Information is on our website, and yes but it costs extra"

I left very frustrated, and quite upset, I threw her card in the garbage immediatley.

My fiance went down the next morning (while I was still asleep)to speak to a manager, and he was very appologetic, and brought down the 'other' coordinator (cant remember her name) He said that she was way more accomidating, and offered to show us around. But Lupita had made me feel so horrible about wasting her time, I had decided on not getting married at the Valentin anymore.

Im not sure if my expectations were unrealistic? Maybe this is how all wedding coordinators are at every Mexican resort, but I was NOT IMPRESSED!

Good luck to you all, if you have any questions, or if you want some pictures of the resort.... let me know! I am more that willing to help.

Unlike what Lupita would say.... "Information is on the website"

For those of you who are for sure getting married at the Valentin, what have you planned so far with the WC? I have reserved my date and put down a deposit. I have yet to pick a location, discuss flowers, discuss a menu, have any of you done any of that?

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
